Bed Head Small Talk Review

Hey guys! Today I'm reviewing Bed Head Small Talk, a 3-in-1 Thickifier, Energizer, and Stylizer. Two of those are totally not words, but it's okay cos this product is great! First thing I have to say about it is... the smell. I am in HEAVEN when I smell this, it's one of the most delicious hair products I've ever smelled. It could be just a personal thing, but to me it smells exactly like Bubble Tape in the Gushing Grape flavor. Do you guys remember that stuff? I don't know if it's even still around, but omg I get a serious craving for it every time I use Small Talk. MMMMMM!

Ok... moving on before I end up eating it, Small Talk is a product that thickens up your hair, while giving slight texture and definition. I highly recommend this especially if your hair is on the shorter side. A lot of reviews online compare Small Talk to Cocky Thickening Paste and some people say they prefer Cocky a little more. I actually prefer Small Talk. I think Cocky is good because it adds body and has some shine to it, but it's very easy to use too much, which could end up making your hair look dirty. Plus, I personally think Cocky is best used in 90%-100% dry hair, while Small Talk is best when used in wet hair.

Small Talk's ingredients include: Water, VP/DMAPA Acrylates Copolymer, Cyclomethicone, Polyquaternium 37, Dimethicone, Dimethiconol, Styrene/Butadiene Copolymer, etc. VP/DMAPA Acrylates Copolymer is commonly found in mousse, gel, texture/curl enhancing products, etc, and it gives hold. Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone, and Dimethiconol are all silicone derivatives. Polyquaternim 37 is a fairly common emulsifier. Styrene/Butadiene Copolymer is actually a kind of synthetic rubber! Isn't that weird? I'm pretty sure it's what keeps the thick and full feeling in your hair.

Overall, I think it's great. You might not like it, you might love it, it's kind of one of those products where you just need to try it. That's how it was with me... actually that's how it is with most of the products I get. LOL!

Bed Head Small Talk comes in a 200 ml / 8 fl. oz. bottle and retails for around $17.

Anyways, I hope you like this review, and sorry for being so lax with my posting lately. I'm really gonna try and do better. I do have a big HAUL to post still, so stay tuned for that! Take care of your hair pretties!

BTW This is Bubble Tape, in case you didn't know:

PS: Hey sweetie--please don't get mad but I had to delete your last comment on my blog. Don't get me wrong--I loved it and thought it was hilarious, but since that was a giveaway post, I only keep comments that are actual entries to the giveaway (otherwise it gets too hard to keep track of everything). I don't think you wanted to enter that giveaway, so I'm sure you won't mind. lol! :) Love ya! xo


Haha it's fine. =P
